I wouldn't be surprised.  I have lost a lot of plants in spots that I
thought were really well-drained.  Well, they were, but that didn't
stop the soil from being moist over winter.  I always thought nothing
would grow under eves....wrong!  Assorted things have seeded into a
gravel spacer type area I put in to keep soil away from the house
wall - under an overhang that's about bone dry.  Plants are amazing

Yes, I thought the wall a bit of work as well, but one of these days,
when I have nothing better to do:-), I just might get daft enough to
try it;-)
